Private Computer Programming Teacher

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I am also currently attending a top 10 computer science Masters program at Georgia Tech specializing in machine learning/artificial intelligence to fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I’m a Senior Front End Developer and have worked extensively with Jp on multiple projects. He was always organized and had a well thought out plan whenever designing or developing a project. I hope to work with him again in the future and definitely recommend him for anyone who really wants to learn.
John
I can say without a doubt that JP was a main driver when it came to our teams ability to stay ahead of the game when it came to meeting deadlines. He is an extremely talented programmer with knowledge that many would envy about the industry and software development.
RAHAT
He is a good guy and told me some good recommended what should I do next time for this class.

But meanwhile, the main reason I paid him he wasn't able to do it. Yet he was counting his time while he should have thought about what he did for the amount of money I paid him. Before the lesson, I pick with him I told him what he needs to do for me. He said he is definitely able to do what I'm asking for. But at the end he didn't do not all of them but also whatever he did was a couple of them were wrong. Never taking any lessons with TAKELESSONS. Waste of my money.

About Nihar

Hey you! I know programming in python (or just coding in general) can seem really scary, I get it, but it doesnt have to be. Most concepts just need to be broken down by human beings to understand what is going on! When you and I have a session together... We'll use my LEGO strategy to learn eac

He really was a lot of help when he gave us some websites to use python in. He also gave a good preview of what python is. I look forward to having more classes of python with him.
